Holidaying in unexpected wet weather

Although we have had the driest June on record, sometimes, your holiday can be dampened by a change in the weather forecast.

It is important to expect all kinds of weather. After all, you can’t control the weather, but you can adapt to it.

1. Check weather reports

Keep up to date with weather sites to ensure you know of any severe weather warnings that have been issued, and when to prepare for rainfall.

2. Make back up plans

You’ve looked at the weather report and you’re planned outdoor activities may not work for you and your family. Why not find some indoor activities around Adelaide. Brave the elements and head to places such as Beach-house, Bounce, Marion Shopping Centre, Museums or Art Galleries. Adelaide has a large amount of indoor activities that can entertain people of all ages.

3. Keep valuables and necessary clothes in car during rain

When rain is expected, make sure you don’t leave any electronics or valuables out in the elements. If you are in a tent, things may be safer in the car.

4. Ensure tent is securely pegged to the ground

There would be nothing worse than loosing your tent with a bit of wind. Make sure it is securely pegged to the ground. Having a waterproof tent could also provide much better protection.

5. Test your camping equipment before you leave

You don’t want to get to your campsite and realise something important doesn’t work. Make you sure erect your tent, and check lights, stove tops etc, to ensure you wont be rushing around trying to find a replacement once you arrive.

6. Upgrade your accommodation

If you aren’t one to brave the elements and you have booked a site, why not upgrade to a cabin?
